    From the SMEG cookbook. The white wine can be replaced with chicken stock, and if you can't find sambal oelek, you can substitute with chili paste.

      Very spicy! Over time these start to burn your mouth and fingers, but terrific flavor for people who don't mind lots of heat. I had to use coriander leaf since I didn't have the root. My mussels were fresh and were done in less than 10 minutes. Fun to eat but messy so don't try this on a first date!

      Lovely, spicy mussels, if just a tad too hot for my personal liking (I like heat, but this knocked my socks off!). I made a 1/2 recipe using a package of frozen green-lipped New Zealand mussels. I just plunked them into the sauce after I'd let it reduce a bit. Thanks.
